ORGANIZER: COPS FOR KIDS WITH CANCER INC
EVENT: Boston Marathon 2014
EVENT DATE: Apr 21, 2014
I am a Police Officer with the Kalamazoo Department of Public Safety in Kalamazoo, MI, currently assigned to the Detective Division. I am also a marathon runner, and have been lucky enough to be chosen as one of the charity runners in the 2014 Boston Marathon for Cops for Kids with Cancer. This will be my second marathon (2013 Chicago being my first) and I am thrilled and honored be a part of this amazing team.
Cops For Kids With Cancer is a charity that gives money directly to families who are dealing with the challenge of having a child sick with cancer. The volunteer charity board consists primarily of Police Officers and/or retired Police Officers who want each family to feel the positive reinforcement that someone else cares. These families are each awarded $5000 to help relieve the stress of financial burdens and hopefully put a small smile on their face. If you can imagine, you can understand. Cops For Kids With Cancer does not have salaries or expense accounts, all monies are returned to the families in need.
Please consider making a donation to this great organization that I am running for. $50 or more will get your name on the back of the T-shirt I will wear during the race. All donations are tax deductible. Thank you.
